Turquoise & Lycian Coast is one of Turkey's most stunning regions stretching along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, and is known for its clear blue waters, rugged coastline, and charming villages.
As we set sail from Marmaris, we will be greeted by the stunning scenery of the coast almost immediately. The crystal-clear waters are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and diving, and the rugged coastline is dotted with secluded coves and hidden beaches.
The area is also home to many ancient ruins, including the ancient cities and the Lycian rock tombs, which offer a glimpse into the region's rich history.
